Tottenham vs Monaco 10 Dec 2015: Europa League Preview and Predictions
10 December 2015/1505ET
Tottenham are playing at home this week where they will face French side Monaco. This game has huge implications for both sides since neither side has guaranteed qualification to the next stage of the competition so both teams will want to do enough. Monaco will be needing a win while for Spurs a draw will do the job. This is going to be an exciting game since both sides are full of quality and will want to do well.
Tottenham go into this game having not won in the last two games. This team is full of talent but the lack of wins will be concerning and they will want to turn that around. That being said players such as Christian Erikson, Erik Lamela and Harry Kane have been playing well lately so the will believe that they can win. Furthermore they will be at home and with a good crowd at White Hart Lane they should be strong enough to get the three points.
Monaco on the other hand are coming off a win but in all honesty they are a lot lower on the domestic table than they should be. This side has a lot of talent and they have the ability to win any game when they play well. I expect Monaco to go out and play a very attacking style of football since they will want to win. This side has a lot of attacking talent and they will have what it takes to score goals.
All in all I expect this to be a high scoring goal. I think Tottenham will win but it will be a close game so if we want to bet on the result taking the outright result is the way to go. In addition to this I think that betting on the number of goals will be useful. Both teams to score has value and that will be my pick. In addition to that, I think that over 2.5 goals is also a good bet.
